. it was a very successful program, in the same way that the obama campaign organized voters and used social needed to turnout its supporters in 2008. but it was never the strategy of the bush campaign to seek the middle of the electorate and turnout every republican in the country. both political parties, when you go into an election, you want to turnout every available voter in your party. on the tactical level, we were able to do that effectively. but that does not displease the necessity of trying to win the center of the electorate. -- that does not displace the necessity of trying to win the center of the electorate. >> i was on the side of that campaign. my perspective was that the bush campaign did have a base strategy. my evidence to that would be the following. you want to understand the strategy of a campaign and that it is manifested effectively. you can look good when and how they're spending their dollars and it will tell you is essentially what their strategy is. if you look at the 2004 bush media by, some other top markets in the country, pensacola florida, where the most rep

before, and can help move the toward agreement between the parties. as president obama has said many times, we believe that a two-state solution to the conflict is the best way to realize the shared goal of israelis and palestinians to live in peace and security. it is also in the interest of the united states. it is urgently needed. the president knows that achieving this goal will be difficult, but he also has said that he will not weaver and his persistent pursuit of comprehensive peace in the middle east. for that reason, he has dedicated himself and his administration to the resumption of israeli-palestinian negotiations and to the creation of an atmosphere that maximizes the prospects for success. to be clear, the steps we have suggested to all parties -- israel, the palestinians, and the arab states -- to improve the atmosphere for negotiations are not ends to themselves, and they certainly are not preconditions to negotiations. but they can make a valuable contribution toward achieving our goal of successful negotiations that result in a two-state solution. that's why we've u

for the last panel? we should say something new. never spit straight up. and the obama administration, a campaign that worked hard not to be its predecessor and we know bush administration was characterized. do not listen. swaggering, a big belt buckle and talking about issues and the american people did not think were central to their lives. one of the ironies of fate is now, a lot of americans look at the obama administration and see what are they doing? the economy is burning down and they are talking about issues that seem important but tangential. whether it is creating a big government health care plan or carbon tax, why are they talking about me? are they listening? they are spending irresponsibly. money that will come back to me. i am going to have to pay for it. never spit straight up. the midterm elections coming up are going to be -- people are going to be empowered not by rubber-stamp in what is going on. a voter can safe stop and think. a more thoughtful approach. republicans, if we do not fix some of our brand problems will probably pick up under 30 seats in the house. i

it have made a difference if president obama had talked about this more -- or had talked about it at all, frankly? >> well, president obama does oppose these kinds of discriminatory measures, restricting and repealing and stripping away rights and would have helped, i believe, had he spoken out more clearly. >> do you think that obama was too quiet. >> i love obama but i think he's always too quiet. >> first of all, he has a million things to could. r do. i campaigned for him when he was running. we wanted him to solve every problem and end homeless and hunger. everybody wants the president to solve every problem. he has a lot on his plate. i do think that this is going to come down to a supreme court decision and it will. it will be legal in our lifetime. i can say, look, i'm married to a black man. we can overcome that hurdle. you should see our naked sex tape. >> here's the bottom line. we need to stop designing their clothes and see how quickly they come around and see how quickly we have gay marriage because everything looks them look sheek and hot and hip and the drag queens are sn

situation they have ever been an. barack obama has turned around and said young people will be the most affected by the current economic climate. if america sneezes, europe catches a cold. it is more like we have caught the flu. seriously, everyone is affected. we will go on being affected by this for a long time. in the future, we will have high taxes, not better health care or schooling or policing, not anything that will benefit us. we will pay for the mistakes of the past. we will basically be paying for the bonuses of the bankers who got us into this situation in the first place. this is why we need to vote for this debate. trust me, we need all the help we can get. this leads me to apprenticeships and training. please tell me how young people is supposed to find themselves living alone perhaps in london while taking part in one of these things. please in light me as to how they will find themselves with no income? how are they supposed to get by? it makes me -- these other questions that a lot of young people are asking themselves. we will create a. thisships, volunteer opportunit

not be separated so i did support president obama's changes to u.s. policy which allowed for limit, lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances for americans with family members in cuba. the goal is to ensure that cuban-americans are able to move freely to visit their families. this is a large step and the cuban government should not squander this new willingness and this opportunity that has been presented. now that the u.s. has made changes to some of its longstanding policies toward cuba i believe it is time for the cuban government to respond in kind. before permitting free travel the cuban government must respond to the plans asserted by u.s. citizens for many years. it is imperative these be dealt with promptly and i think of the chairman. >> the time of the gentleman has expired in now our final the witnesses, the gentlelady from texas, ms. sheila jackson-lee is recognized. >> thank you very much and thanks to the ranking member for the cooperation of this hearing. some years ago i was involved in the tragedy of ileana gonzalez, the loss of his mother and family members that wa
